*Each student should get plenty of sleep so they are well rested and ready to start the testing process. 

*Make sure that your child gets a balanced breakfast each morning.

*Please have your student arrive at school on time.

Thanks for all your help in making this testing process successful for your students!

Energy Incentive Challenge

Tue, 03/27/2018 - 2:09pm

Recently our district applied to earn the Energy Star Certification.  We sent in Energy Star applications for 44 of our facilities and ALL 44 qualified.  This is an amazing feat because in order to qualify a building must score in the top 75 percentile compared to other schools around the nation.  Our district average score was 99, with many schools scoring a perfect 100.

This certification process for Energy Star is not an easy one.  Air quality, lighting quality, and the overall Engery Use Index readings and calculations of each facility are taken into account.  This data, along with many other data points, are used to compare our K-12 facility to other K-12 facilities throughout the country.  We then receive  a score based on the grading criteria outlined by Energy Star. 

Way to go Nebo School District! We are an  Energy Star leader in the state.

Nebo School District is always trying to improve communication and responsiveness to our stakeholders. To that end, we invite students, parents and teachers to give feedback on teachers and administrators in Nebo District schools.  A link to the Nebo Stakeholder Survey 2017-2018 will be found on the Nebo home page at www.nebo.edu beginning Wednesday, February 7 and remaining open until Wednesday, February 21, 2018, where Nebo District stakeholders will be able to share their thoughts and experiences. (Parents and employees will be emailed a link to help them gain access, while students will be shown the link in their computer labs.)

The purpose of the Nebo Stakeholder Survey is to help us improve instruction and to keep our finger on the pulse of our patrons. For feedback to be most useful, we suggest being polite even when sharing intensely positive or negative feelings, sharing specific experiences that illustrate your ratings, and using appropriate language in all circumstances.

Thank you for your helpful feedback.
